The state of mental health in the UK

Mental health problems constitute the largest single source of world economic burden, with an estimated global cost of £1.6 trillion, greater than cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, cancer, and diabetes combined (Mental Health Foundation, 2015). In the UK alone the estimated costs of mental health problems are over £100 billion each year and the growing reliance on medication is contributing to this burden on our health system – over 60m prescriptions for antidepressants were issued in England in 2015.
